Welcome to Mirfield Team Paris
Sunday 27th September 2020
The Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity
Service times update:
As from Sunday 20/9/20 we shall be increasing the number of services we offer. The pattern from then will be:
Sunday 9:30 am Eucharist with music St. Mary's.
11:15 am Eucharist with music St. John's.
Wednesday 10 am Said Eucharist St. Mary's.
Thursday 10 am Said Eucharist St. John's.
The same social distancing and hygiene rules will apply to all services.
Next week (4th October) we shall be celebrating HARVEST at both St. Mary's and St. John's. We do still have the collecting trugs at the entrance to church if anyone wants to donate food etc this will be taken to the Welcome Centre in Huddersfield. However, it would be just as effective to mark Harvest by donating to the Centre online and this can be done here:
For all services we are now advised that those who are able need to wear masks in church.
THE GOVERNMENT QR SCAN CODE for track and trace is displayed on entry to the church so that if you have the app you are now able to use it instead of completing the Track & Trace slips. Alternatively, a steward will have a list of REGULAR WORSHIPPERS and will tick your name off if that applies to you. Only if you are not a regular worshipper will a track and trace slip need to be completed.
SO . . . . IT'S A THREE FOLD EXERCISE
QR code or
Ticked of list or
Complete T and T form if the first two are not applicable.
When coming into church please remember to keep a Social Distance of 1 metre plus face covering (or 2 metres if exempt) from the next person in church. Pews are for one household only or a 'bubble' and not a mix of different households. There are enough pews to be able to achieve this. A steward may direct you to a specific pew, please follow their instructions.
For the time being please can you let us know if you are coming to the Communion services?
THE APCM MEETING is on Sunday 11th October at the end of the 9:30 service. The 9:30 service at St. Mary’s will be a joint Parish one. We hope to invite those who want to be there via Zoom if the technology allows. If any one would like to be there via Zoom they will have to ask me for the log in details. The Annual Report , finance report and electoral roll list are available in church, on the web site and as an attachment with the news sheet.
October and May parish magazines are now available.
Notices are being placed in ST MARY’S GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE and on the noticeboard about a Garden 'clear-up/tidy day' next Saturday, 3rd October. We're renewing the Graveyard policy and reminding people of the Regulations that cover graveyards.
As part of this we are asking people to please remove all personal and unauthorised items and take them home.
Any queries about this, then please contact Rev. Helen Butler.

Mirfield Team Parish now has its own YouTube channel. I encourage you to SUBSCRIBE (free) so we can get the full benefit from it. The morning service is now streamed out live from 9:30 am on Facebook and will then be there to watch later on both Facebook and YouTube. As always, if we can help in any way do let us know. With every blessing. Hugh
